"My son, who has high-functioning autism, has been taking lessons from Rick for well over a year. While an accomplished percussionist in his own right, I have never witnessed a more kind, thoughtful or reliable teacher, who listens and designs his approach to his students, than Rick. I find his understated demeanor matched with his confounding consistency to be of the highest virtue."

"Rick has really inspired my daughter to improve her drumming and she says she learns more about science from him than she does at school!"

"Rick makes learning to play drums enjoyable. Whether writing out drum tabs from a favorite song, working on basic form or techniques, or adding drum tab to originals he is a technically capable teacher. He is very knowledgeable about different genres. He refers to drumming websites to help you better yourself. He is very open to working on any song or technique to keep it fun. He can also play bass so we can just "jam" and work on grooves. Every day is a great day when you have a lesson from Rick.
